For those sports history buffs, Rugby League came about after the RFU decided to enforce the amateur principle to rugby as sport. As an amateur sport, rugby no longer allowed players to receive “broken time payments” (compensation for players who had taken time off work to play). Needless to say, with half the teams unable to afford the amateur sport, Rugby League was born in contrast to Rugby Union. As for the rules, Rugby League overall has less contentions for possession, 13 active players compared to 15 and a try is worth 4 points instead of 5.
